Sternbergs Like Me Classwinner at the International Connemara Stallion Show in the Netherlands
In the end of march 2017 we drove with our young Class I Stallions Sternbergs Easter Monday und Sternbergs Like Me to the Netherlands to the International Stallion Show.
Both stallions presented beautifully although we had a really long drive there. Easy was the youngest stallion at the show and was placed third in his class.
Sternbergs Like Me was Winner of the biggest Class, the Class fpr 5 and 6 years old stallions under the judges Tom Mac Lochlainn from Ireland and Joop de Jong and Yvonne Noordkamp-Peters from the Netherlands.
We were especially proud as Like Me was also the only (!!!) stallion who competed successfuly in all three classes, show, showjumping and dressage (musical fresstyle).

Sternbergs Like Me - Reserve Winner at the Federal Stallion Show Berlin 2015
We were already very happy that our breeding association choose our two homebred stallions to be allowed to participate at the big FN Federal Stallion Show for the best Sportponies in whole Germany.
In the days at the big fair "Gruene Woche" in Berlin our young boys learned a lot!
It was a wonderful attestation of our stud that in the showrinbg of the Connemara Stallion the first three stallions all were sired by our foundation stallions Skousboe Morning Rock and El Larry. And the youngest participant, our own Sternbergs Like Me was choosen as Reserve Winner of the Connemara Stallions!!!
Here a video from a spontaneous show act, Liky was never before ridden with a flag and most of the time I had to ride him with only one hand:

And this is one of the first training for Like Me in Berlin:

Sternbergs Lenaro in Australia
A dream for us breeders comes true - after a long trip we can show here the first photos of a Sternbergs Stallion in his new home in Australia - Sternbergs Lenaro at Peppertree Connemara Pony Stud with the Sharne family in Australia:

Sternbergs Like Me passed Stallion Performance test
At 4th/5th november 2014 we showed our 3,5 years old stallion Sternbergs Like Me at the 2 days Performance test for Stallions. Although Liky was the youngest stallion of the whole group he passed the test (a Dressage, loose jumping, a showjumping parcours and two tests by riding judges) without any problems.
We are especially proud that he got an outstanding 8,5 from the riding judges, which was the second highest grade of the day. After Likys halfsister last year could already get the highest grade of all ponies participant for riding ability we feel really honoured for this results by outside riders which proof the talents and riding ability of our El Larry offspring!

German National Show in Gruenberg 2014
At the German National Connemara Pony Show on 26th and 27th july 2014 several ponies from our breeding and offspring from our stallions were again very successful
Especially the winner of the Stallion Class and later also Supreme Champion of the Show Patriks Meirliun, son of our Skousboe Morning Rock and how we think a pony who is very alike to his Sire, he could also convince with a win in the dressage class A! Congratulations to breeder an owner Ulrike Krüger!
In the big Gelding classes Sternbergs Merlino (Skousboe Moring Rock x Renate vom Donaumoos) could go on to the very top and was praised highly by the judge Moss Joyce for his convincing quality. Our congratulations go here to his owner Nicoletta Stahl!
Sternbergs Liara (El Larry x Lena) was not only winning the class for 4 years old Mares, but was also awarded Reserve Champion mare of the Show! Well done to her owner Sarah Dietrich!

Atlantic Deep Secret at her Mares Performance test
At 21st july 2014 Chrissi has shown our broodmare Atlantic Deep Secret (Royal Atlantic Star x Atlantic Peace) at the Mares Performance test in Goeppingen. The leader of the breeding association praised her for her outstanding character and told her riders that at a stations test she would have for sure got a 10 for her character. But also without this grade it was no problem for Secret to pass the test and we are happy about one more mare that has a proof for her riding ability.

Foals 2014
Our foal crop 2014 is complete now and we are really happy with the top quality of our foals again!
We have a very interesting bred colt foal by Elite stallion El Larry, two very convincing colts by Elite stallion Skousboe Morning Rock out of proven matings and a very charming colt by PB Hazy Marschall.
Arda's Murphy has delivered us something very special with his trio of beautiful fillies, between them a stunning palomino filly foal out of Lousianna vom Donaumoos, that was already sold at the very young age of two days to our friends, the Newton family in Australia.

Snowfly is Elite mare
We are proud to announce that after Moccachino's inspection in Class I at the International Stallion Show in Holland his dam Sternbergs Snowfly is eligible to carry the Elite mare title!!!!
In our breeding association this is very hard to achieve, Sternbergs Snowfly has points from her two Class I sons, Sternbergs Larry JR in Denmark and Sternbergs Moccachino in the Netherlands and from several Premium and Gold Premium foals. Snowfly is homebred out of our foundation mare Sue (by Sarsfield) and by the stallion Skatholm Ladykiller.

International Connemara Stallion Show Heeze/Holland 2014
With our young stallions Sternbergs Like Me (EH El Larry x Maike) and Sternbergs Silver Sam (Clifden Silver x Maike) we made the long journey (500 kilometers) to the International Stallion Show in Heeze in the Netherlands and the show was worth every mile of it!
One stallion from our breeding was shown there together with two other colts for inspection and he was the only one to get licensed in Class I under the international judges Joop de Jong and Jos van der Wal from the Netherlands, Tom Mac Lochlainn from Ireland and Nina Gustafson from Sweden. Sternbergs Moccachino is from the first foal crop of Arda's Murphy in Sweden and out of our homebred States Premium mare Sternbergs Snowfly.
All three stallions bred by us competed in the first class for 3 to 5 years old stallions. Moccachino could win this class, Like Me as the youngest participant was placed second and Silver Sam followed on the fourth place. We were very happy with the good results for our boys!

At 20th october we showed our young stallion Sternbergs Like Me (El Larry x Maike by Diamant) at the Bavarian Pony Stallion Inspection in München and again he had no problems to convince the judges. Especially he was praised for his super body and topline, his good type and his good movements. We are very proud on our young stallion.
